Welcome to presentations by inspirational speakers delivered as part of the AALL professional development series Connect. Inspire. Share.

Launched in 2020 by AALL-VIC representatives and convenors Elena Verezub and Steve Campitelli, this PD series invites members to:

  • Connect – with other AALL members
  • Inspire – hear and learn from inspirational speakers about teaching and learning
  • Share – discuss and share perspectives on contemporary issues in the field of academic language and learning

Each session features a presentation by an inspirational speaker followed by discussions and a Q&A with the guest speaker.

Since 2022, Connect.Inspire.Share. has been convened by AALL Professional Development Committee members, Steve Campitelli, Tiana Blazevic-Bastow, May Kocatepe and Alice Lee. Connect.Inspire.Share. now also incorporates the popular Meet the Author professional conversations where you will hear from authors of Journal of Academic Language and Learning (JALL) articles and have the opportunity to engage in lively discussion about their ideas.

You will find information, video recordings and slides of presentations from the current CIS season, Season 4, below.
